Funerals are some of the most challenging times of lives and it’s more than understandable why. After all, we want to remember and celebrate our family member or loved one in a manner that is fitting to them. Sometimes that comes in the form of more celebratory funeral arrangements or perhaps your loved one wanted a more private service.
The key factor in all of this though is the respect and thanks you and your family want to give to your loved one who has passed. There are of course many options to consider when planning a funeral though often your loved one will have specified their desires for the day beforehand. Nevertheless, here are some tasteful ideas to consider.
The concern many of us have for the planet continues to grow year after year as the threat of climate change becomes increasingly real. Of course, much of our day-to-day lives has an effect on our environment though there are steps we can take to mitigate this. While you may not be aware of it, funerals can also damage our environment and a great deal of people are now choosing a green service and burial to try and reduce their carbon footprint. A green funeral is a great option if you or your family are particularly environmentally conscious
If you’re planning a funeral with a burial one of the most important aspects is of course the coffin. In the modern era, there are a myriad of options available for you when it comes to the size, colour, and material of the coffin. This is extremely important especially as the coffin will be where your loved one is laid to rest. It is quite likely that they had a few thoughts on the type of coffin they would have liked. However, meeting with some trained funeral directors can really help you make an informed decision.
It goes without saying really that a well-put-together floral decoration is one of the most thoughtful additions to any funeral. Whether the flowers you choose are designed to celebrate your loved one’s life or allow those around you to grieve peacefully you have many options available to you.
You may choose to have a small bouquet on the top of the coffin or a series of smaller arrangements surrounding the church or venue. It’s important to talk with some experts on the subject. Here at T & I Stockman, we can walk you through a huge variety of floral arrangements so you can pick the option that best suits your loved one.
